Blue Note Records is celebrating its 85th Anniversary with a tour featuring the Blue Note Quintet — a group brought together to honor the label’s rich history and pave the way for the eclectic artists of today’s roster.
Six-time Grammy Award nominee Gerald Clayton leads the band as musical director and pianist. “Gerald Clayton is one of the most accomplished, distinctive and innovative pianists performing today” says Don Was, the label’s president since 2012.
Rounding out the group are vibraphonist Joel Ross, saxophonist Immanuel Wilkins, drummer Kendrick Scott and bassist Matt Brewer.
